  • Hard to find, but worth it for anyone with a love of vintage cars. The attraction is hidden away in the beautiful Sussex countryside, along narrow country lanes. Once you arrive, there is a long driveway, eventually culminating in a grass car park. Entrance fees aren't too bad at £8 for adults and £6 for children, especially as you could spend a good few hours enjoying the cars, house, wildfowl, grounds, etc... The museum houses a collection of vintage vehicles, ranging from a plastic bike to a F1 car, with many interesting cars and bikes in between. Whilst there is the traditional museum rope, you can still get right up close to the exhibits and take photographs. Unfortunately, especially for keen photographers, the lighting is quite varied and tricky, with skylights causing reflections on the bodywork of cars, coupled to a range of fluorescent and tungsten lighting. In another building, there is a small display on the history of the area, the attraction, and various crafts. This, sadly, is particularly good and is in need of a revamp to make it worthwhile. The wildfowl section houses a range of birds in a lovely wooded area. Although, not particularly large, it provides a nice relaxing walk and a chance to spot the peacocks. There is also a lovely house and train rides (at extra cost) to enjoy, but I didn't have time for these. The cafe provides a range of dishes and drinks, including alcohol. It is pretty basic fayre, but tasty enough, if maybe a little pricey - £3 for a small bowl of chips. If dry, this is an enjoyable attraction, offering a range of things to see. If raining, unless you are interested in cars, there isn't much to make this a worthwhile trip.
  • Great cafe, great food, very friendly staff. I was there with a group after a long festival so we were exhausted and they really took extra effort to look after us and be hospitable. Two thumbs up.
  • Awesome place to visit with the children with lots of things to see and do. Shame they don't use a local pest control company as there rats would be under control quicker!
  • Such a shame that the gardens, playground and bird area are badly maintained and that the cafe staff are so extremely rude. When I went years ago it was so much better. In its current state it is simply not worth the expense or effort to get there.
  • A great place to spend an afternoon. Always a warm and friendly welcome
